    I had to tell you I don't
    feel the same way
    it's nothing personal I
    just think of you as a friend
    don't feel ya like that
    the unquantifiable isn't there
    and you take it well
    you're not immature
    I would like to forget about it and
    move on
    but you're still in love with me
    I can see it in your eyes
    the way they adore me
    drink me in
    I can tell by the things you do
    catering to my needs as a lover would
    it is sad to see you like this
    in quiet dignity
    I've been in your shoes so many times
    right now I'm on the other side
    why, so often
    is it like this
    that the love felt
    doesn't go both ways

    Wow, when it's like this, and the person is a dear friend, it hurts. Not as bad as the person who is in love, but it hurts and there is guilt along with it. You expressed these feelings so well gempis, life can be funny this way, can't it?

    Now this is filled with truth. A sweet and gentle way to express what isn't
    felt.

    This is awesome, Gempis. I've been on both sides of this. Its uncomfortable on either. You worry about the strain of the friendship, if the other person can get over you or if you can still hang out with that person and keep your feelings in check. Loved this piece. Nice read.

    you are gentle in this piece...and that is nice...
    but sometimes tough love may have to be the way...and that may mean
    just letting go...but the gentleness is sweet.
